Canyon de Chelly National Monument, located within the boundaries of the Navajo Nation in northeast Arizona, offers historic and visual painting opportunities. The autumn color along the Chinle River and the the variety of shapes and colors in the sheer cliff walls provided a strong backdrop for this composition. I used overlapping shapes, foreground details, warm and cool colors to create a sense of depth.
